It is in the ordinary.
The little and simple, everyday moments.
The ones that blow by - too often unnoticed.
But when I do pause and take notice of these moments.
It is then that I see them for what they truly are.
Ordinary - yes, deserved - no, blessings - privileges even - that take my breath away and make me whisper again.
Really, God? This? This is the life you have given me? With these children? This is how my days tick away for this season? It's all too wonderful. Honestly, this is a breath-taking gift. I just need to recognize the gift, because this gift is so often masked in the ordinary.
